VIENNA - Iran must cooperate urgently with the UN nuclear watchdog in its investigation into Tehran's atomic activities, a senior US official said on Tuesday.

Robert Wood, the acting US envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), made the statement shortly after the agency said it expected to sign a cooperation deal with Iran soon."While we appreciate the efforts (by the IAEA) to conclude a substantive agreement, we remain concerned by the urgent obligation for Iran to take concrete steps to cooperate fully (with the agency)," Wood said.
